COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale's golden amber color only hints at its full-bodied flavor. Its sumptuous maltiness is tempered by a goodly amount of bitterness and a mouth-filling hop flavor. In order to finish our I.P.A. with a truly fresh hop bouquet, we dry hop this ale in the serving tank with both East Kent Goldings and Mount Hood hops.

On tap @ Steamworks. Golden pour with a white head. Quite piney and a bit herbal. Some grapefruit, melon, and orange peel. Light caramel and bready malt. Flavor is lightly sweet up front and fairly bitter on the back end. A lot of grapefruit and pine. Some fresh herbs and a bit of citrus peel. Slightly grassy as it warms.

stantheman (786) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
On tap at the pub in Gastown. I see the ratings are crap, but I actually rather like it. Nice darker amber color, but can’t get much nose off it so far. Very crisp, refreshing and unusual hoppy character, with a bit of malt in the background. It’s an unusual hop variety it seems. Less citrus than some is about all I can say. Nice.

solidfunk (5291) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Some fruit in initial smell, probably apple. Pours cloudy golden with pretty good lacing and some head. Although the first smell is ok, the aftertaste is astringent, almost chemical. Not entirely pleasant. On tap at brewpub.
